Doctor's visit went about as planned. 7 x-rays, disc degeneration, and bone spurs = epidurals and traction. No surgery, which I wasn't considering anyway. Doctor also doesn't want me to take so much flexeril - since it's a muscle relaxer and what I need is anti-inflammatories....which means Aleve on pretty much a daily basis. Best thing to do is traction and to start epidurals so they can inject steroids right into the inflamed area....
Oh right, and exercise. Because, he says as he eyed me up and down and then pointed to my belly, I obviously don't take care of myself.
Updated to add: 9 hours later I'm still upset. It's not like I don't know what I look like - and who are you to make me feel bad about myself? PS - My sister wants to know which bedside manner book taught you to be so judgmental and insensitive.
Yup, you're still a jerk.
